Friendly, competitive tennis on Sutton's public courts

You are just a step away from joining our mixed-sex, singles league for men and women (aged 18+) of all standards.

If you have been meaning to get back into tennis or would like to meet new people to play, why not give it a go!

Close matches, close by.

Want to Get Playing?

From the dates above, choose your round and click on the Join By link.


Every player who completes three matches by the midway point of any round is sent a FREE can of tennis balls! Plus there are great offers all the time in our shop.


This is how it works:

  • Players are organised into groups of between 5 to 9 people of a similar standard
  • It is a mixed sex, singles league, so men and women play each other
  • Groups are put together by standard and there can be any combination of men and women in a group (we do not guarantee a balance of men and women and you could be the only man in a group of women or vice versa!)
  • Contact details are emailed and posted to each player's account page
  • Players arrange their own matches
  • You can play on any court that suits both players

The league is:

  • For everyone over the age of 18
  • We welcome beginners as well as advanced players.
  • Don't worry that you won't be good enough - playing matches is the best way to improve, and we use an online questionnaire to assess people's ability so you play only people of a roughly similar level
  • Affiliated to the LTA For adults aged 18 years and above 

Key points

  • Matches are best of three sets; if a set reaches 6 games all it is decided by a tiebreak
  • The evening before the round starts you will receive an email with all the contact details of the players in your group. Contact details are also posted to your Account Page
  • Players are placed in groups according to past performance in the league and, for new players, their Player Standard Questionnaire
  • Each player attempts to play each of the other player on their group once during the round
  • A point is awarded for each set won
  • If you complete three matches before the midpoint of a round you receive 2 bonus points and a bonus prize (either a pair of Local Tennis Leagues dampeners, or a tube of tennis balls)
  • The winner of the group is the player with the most points at the end of the round
  • The winner of the group wins a voucher for £20 to be spent in the Local Tennis League online shop. A winner's certificate is also posted to the winner's Account Page as a PDF file.
  • Where possible, winners of groups are promoted to the group above for the next round.

"I’m a doubles player but played my first singles round recently and loved it!  So many good and friendly players and I learnt so much about my game and what I need to do to improve!  Really bought on my doubles game too. Really loving the league."

Player Comments:

  • "What a match! By the end of the third game, I was already exhausted from chasing the ball all over the court. Momentum swung one way and then the other with a great comeback from John in the first set which had me on the ropes. Great match, thanks John"  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "A really enjoyable match on a sunny, breezy Saturday morning! The first set could have easily gone the other way with practically every game going to deuce as we traded baseline shots. Fortunately for me, Marek's deadly fast flat forehands weren't quite landing during the second and I escaped with the win. Great game, thanks Marek!"  -- Christopher

Player Comments:

  • "A very competitive and fun match. Christopher raced to the first set and I’m not quite sure how but somehow I managed to hang in there and squeak the second set. Achieved a first by hitting a smash winner which bounced out of the court and onto a nearby croquet law in the match tie break! Good luck with the rest of your games Christopher really enjoyed playing. "  -- Julian
